Best Friends
For My Friends and Myself That Self-Injury

This is a Prayer Circle for those of my friends and myself that struggle with the addiction of self-injury. This isn't for the judgmental; we just need lots of prayers. I greatly appreciate your prayers.

Self-injury is one of the most untalked about, socially unacceptable forms of addiction. People that self-injure keep their addiction a secret because they are most often very ashamed of what they do and feel very alone. Self-injury starts out as a way to cope with intense emotional feelings that the person feels they can only express or release by harming themselves. Cutting or burning themselves actually will help relieve the pain the person is feeling. Unfortunately this eventually stops working and the person is faced with a secret addiction that can cost them their lives. Although one would think that a person who self-injures is suicidal the act of self-injury is the opposite and is rarely associated with suicide in the person. Six of my close friends and I self-injure. I don't want to die and they don't want to do. We all have our reasons and we are all trying our very hardest. I'm seeing a therapist, my family knows, and I'm on medication but it is still very hard so please pray.
